"Being a signal pearant is exstreamly testing at the moment. Reading all your post it is very clear we're not alone but almost a part of some secret society. Do you think a online video call chat group would help you not feel alone and get you your adult conversation? I'm lucky tho as a single mum I also have a friend to talk to and understand what is is like to also have a child with additional needs. PS I also gave up an home schooling. It's pointless for us and my kids are under 3 and the other is going into year 3, So they will be ok in the long run. We also had a one off BIRTHDAY video call with her grandad who lives in Spain. And yes he couldn't take off the filter. Lol"
